Detroit Tigers rally to top Guardians 5-3, sweep doubleheader

Jonathan Schoop walked into the clubhouse at Comerica Park Monday morning amid a season-long recession.

He left Monday night and felt like one of the hottest hits in baseball after the best nine hours of his season.

After a perfect 4-to-4 match 1 of the double-headed, Schoop continued, where he escaped in game 2, going 2-to-4 with a run and an RBI, raising his average from .191 to .207.

Schoop got the score started early and led the third with a double for his fifth stroke in as many strokes on the day. After advancing to third place on a Victor Reyes ground ball to the right, Greene came to the plate.
